Bentley Continental Flying Spur (First Generation)

Why Bentley Is Recalling Certain Continental Flying Spur Models

Bentley vehicles aren't known for being recalled for a safety issue. But this week, a group of Continental Flying Spurs are being called back to dealers for just that.

127 Continental Flying Spurs from the 2007 to 2009 model year are being recalled by Bentley because of sunroof possibly falling out its housing. During manufacturing, the sunroof glass wasn't properly secured to the frame. If the glass separates from the frame, it could fall inside the cabin or fly out of the vehicle and become a serious road hazard. According to Bentley documents filed to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the company was made aware of this issue "based on information shared from other manufacturers.” One of the likely manufacturers is Audi which announced a recall for the same issue last month.

To fix this issue, dealers will apply more adhesive between the sunroof glass and frame at no charge. Owners will be notified about this recall this month. If you have any concerns or questions, you are asked to call Bentley customer service at 1-800-777-6923.
